golgarigirlTriusMalarky the point is that with 2xFountain of Renewal, 1x Ajani's Welcome, 3x Revitalize and 4x Chaplain's Blessing I'll either use them to gain health or use it for storming with tokens. This also works with Archangel of Thune. If I get rid of Chaplain's Blessing I will have to have some sort of lifegain card, and with Resplendent Angel this card works perfectly, as it gives 5 health. If I were to run Angel of Vitality, I would have to waste a turn playing her in order to gain 1 more life per lifegain, and it won't even guarantee that i'll have over 25 health, while I could be casting Resplendent Angel. Relying upon enchantments and artifacts for lifegain could go wrong in being destroyed by a spell, while an instant is an instant. Sure, no one can protect against hand control, but regardless i don't think chaplain's blessing would be their first choice if they knew my strategy and saw my anointed procession in my hand. Hedron Crawler are like Pillar of Origins but not as good for angels. So, I would rather add more Pillar of Origins than Hedron Crawler; also Hedron Crawler is a creature which is more susceptible to being bolted or destroyed while Pillar of Origins is an artifact. Certainly Ajani's Pridemate would be very useful, but if I don't have something like 4x Healer's Hawk and multiple lifegain events triggered, it won't be a big card. However, that's why I have so many lifegain cards! So, yes, I'll consider Ajani's Pridemate!

golgarigirl gets it.
Now, I don't want to force you to change strategies, so I'll give you a couple more tips before leaving you alone.
- Most of this strategy costs 4 mana or less. 4 isn't all that necessary to ramp into.
- If you do use ramp, use Hedron Crawler as it can help cast your enchantments.
- Angel of Vitality isn't useless without Resplendent Angel -- it's easily a 3-mana 4/4 with flying, that buffs your lifegain. In the situations where you're not at 25 life, she helps you by increasing lifegain.
- I didn't necessarily mean 1-mana creatures -- I meant Prism Ring and Fountain of Renewal because they help you gain more life.
- Ajani's Pridemate? Might be good here.
- I think that this deck would be better if you curved with lifegain and creatures -- don't get too obsessed with tokens, because they're best when it's just "oh, I already have the requirements set up". Beat them with creatures and then use the tokens as your turns 4-5 plan -- having a threat in play and then you get a system to generate tokens every turn is devastating.

TriusMalarky If I draw a Pillar of Origins on my 2nd turn, I'll be able to playResplendent Angel and Chaplain's Blessing both on turn 3, thus having a 4/4 angel as soon as possible! If I have Prism Ring and Fountain of Renewal, I would have to play multiple of them in order to even gain 4 life per turn, even with Angel of Vitality! And if I don't have Resplendent Angel then Angel of Vitality is useless! What is the point of having 1-drops? Chump blockers? I don't know of any angelic 2-drops, and the entire point of having Pillar of Origins is to cast angels, as it must make me choose a creature type. I do have Bishop of Wings and Tithe Taker as 2-drops, and I won't need ramp for these as they are 2-drops.

I suggested Angel of Vitality because typically, you want 8 1-drops, 8 2-drops, and 8 3-drops for a solid curve, at least baseline before you tune it. Angel of Vitality buffs lifegain and is a 3-drop, which helps. I think you'd be happier playing a creature on turn three instead of ramping into five drops. It gives you more of a board state, and more to do if you get mana screwed. Oketra's Monument really doesn't do much here because of all the high-cost angels. It's better with a bunch of 1- and 2-drops.
Chaplain's Blessing is bad because 5 life is rarely useful and it's also just a dead card without Resplendent Angel or Angelic Accord. It's still a plausible card here, but it can't count as a one-drop -- you need Prism Ring and Fountain of Renewal for those slots. Blessing is only useful if you hold it until you have a lifegain payoff in hand.

TriusMalarky I plan on spamming 4/4 Angel Tokens with Anointed Procession and Angelic Accord and Resplendent Angel.will allow me to have a 4/4 angel token each turn with Chaplain's Blessing and Fountain of Renewal with Revitalize and Bishop of Wings. Resplendent Angel costs just as much as Angel of Vitality, and is a 3/3 without needing to be over 25 health for a 4/4 of Angel of Vitality. Chaplain's Blessing is the best mono-white lifegain card for 5 health for 1 mana.

As I see from your forum post, you've realized that Angels needs ramp, and badly.
I'm going to go over a couple card suggestions, and then I'll cover what I think the deck needs to become solid.
First, lands -- you're mono white. You can run some fancy lands.
Field of Ruin -- 1-2 copies. You choose. You will need some, just because lots of players are running Castles, and it helps against them.
Now, to make this deck good, you want it focused. That means two things -- you want every card to work towards one goal, and you want a really good curve. You've got a solid start here, but you need some changes.
First, you should almost always be running 6-8 turn one plays, and removal doesn't count. Not that you have Path in Pioneer, though. You really only run 3, and Chaplain's Blessing sucks. You should run the playset of Fountain of Renewal and a playset of Prism Ring. Both of those will help stack lifegain. Lose the Blessings, they're too weak.
If you add 4 Angel of Vitality, and fix your curve, this would be a legitimately scary deck to face up against. Not necessarily tier 1, but it'll be a significant threat.

That is indeed a great card. I've never seen that before. But i would rather put Fountain of Renewal out for it. I dont want to go down on the creature count as it is already quite low. But thank you for the suggestion. i will add it in the maybeboard, as I do not own it at the moment!
You are right, i feel like the deck is missing win-cons. I have Revel in Riches as one. But in general, I think this deck just wants to survive at the moment. And thats a bit boring. I actually thought about Rogue's Passage and Serra Avatar or Evra, Halcyon Witness as good finishers.
What cards, do you think, i can cut?
